This is a list of cumulative spacewalk records for the 30 astronauts who have the most extra-vehicular activity (EVA) time.[1][2] The record is currently held by Anatoly Solovyev of the Russian Federal Space Agency, with 82:22 hours from 16 EVAs, followed by NASA's Michael Lopez-Alegria with 67:40 hours in 10 EVAs. This list is current as of 20 April 2013.[1][3] The RSA designation includes spacewalks under the earlier Soviet space program.
